Temple City Bhubaneswar proved to be a magnificent new home for hockey by staging the 35th Men’s Champions Trophy Tournament very successfully at Kalinga Stadium Hockey Complex from Dec 6 to 14, 2014. Germany won the glittering silver trophy for the 10th time with a convincing 2-0 win over three-time title winners Pakistan in the thrilling summit clash.
